My Approach to Helping

My approach with my clients is gentle, straightforward, interactive, and tends to focus on the positive aspects of clients' personalities. In working with younger children, our work tends to be a combination of play and art therapy, wherein I am a witness to the young child's developing self and emotional growth. As a certified Yoga for the Special Child and Radiant Child yoga instructor, I often incorporate simple yoga techniques (breathing, guided visualization, and relaxation) into my work with clients to help decrease anxiety, stress, and negative thinking.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I feel profoundly privileged to help clients navigate the often confusing and overwhelming terrain of self-exploration. I am constantly awed and inspired by my clients' desire to grow and explore. When sitting with a young client on my floor playing a board game or putting on a puppet show, I am so appreciative of the opportunity to connect with such resilient and expressive children. I am my clients' biggest fan!

Groups I Work With

    My private practice primarily focuses on the treatment of young children and adult individuals, particulary women. I have a particular interest in working with children who are experiencing anxiety-related issues such as separation anxiety, school phobias,excessive worry, somatic complaints, and sleep difficulties. Many of my young clients are trying to navigate a divorce or death in the family. In my work with women, our work tends to focus on creating a healthy balance between caring for themselves and tending to family and work relationships in a safe, nonjudmental environment. I strive to help clients of all ages live fulfilling and meaningful lives.
